Digital games developer NextGen is known for applying amusing visual quirks to its slot games, and Super Safari features some of the goofiest-looking African animals ever seen on the savannah. The reels are framed by two trees at the edge of the forest, looking out over the plains, with jungle lianas forming the separate reels.
The reels themselves are transparent, so players can watch animals and birds moving over the breath-taking landscape behind them. Occasionally, a Land Rover full of herbivore tourists will scoot past, being pursued by a lion.
Wacky Animal Icons
With the variety of familiar African animals available, Super Safari has no need for Poker symbols. All the icons are theme related, starting with a Meerkat that pays 5, 10 or 100 coins for three, four or five of a kind. The Monkey and the Hyena win equal-value prizes in this real money slots casino game, as do the Ostrich and the Zebra, and then the Crocodile and Giraffe.
The Rhino and the Elephant are the two top-paying ordinary symbols, and both pay out for two of a kind or better. For two, three, four or five of a kind, the Rhino pays 2, 50, 100 or 2,000 coins, and the Elephant pays 5, 100, 200 or 5,000 coins. All the symbols are exaggerated caricatures of the beasts, with comical expressions.
Wild One of Four Bonus Triggers
As might be expected, the king of the beasts, a Lion, is the Super Safari Wild. It only appears on Reels 2, 3 and 4, but it will stand in for any other symbols in winning combos except the three special bonus icons.
If three Lions appear on one spin in the three centre reels, it triggers the King of the Jungle Respins. The player gets 3 free respins, with one of the three centre reels becoming a stacked Wild on each spin, and all prizes tripled.
Land Rover Scatter Doubles Free Spin Prizes
In an amusing pun, the Land Rover, which usually scatters wildlife on a safari, is the Super Safari Scatter icon. It serves the usual dual function: paying a multiplier of the total spin whenever two or more appear anywhere on the reels, and triggering the bonus game.
For two, three, four or five Scatters, the multiplier won is X2, X5, X15 and X250 of the total bet, and three or more Scatters trigger a bonus round of 10 free spins, during which all wins are doubled.
Two More Bonus Features
Another special symbol is the Binoculars; whenever it appears, it triggers Super Spins, and any wins on these spins are multiplied by X5. The final bonus icon is the Hippo; if a spin results in three Hippos, the player wins a random multiplier that can be up to 150X the total bet. Because the other bonuses also apply to the Hippo, wins can be increased by as much as X300 during free spins and 750X during Super Spins.
Variable Bets and Paylines
Super Safari features 25 paylines, but players can choose any number between 1 and 25 to play per spin. Bets per line can be varied from 0.01 to 2.00 in the local currency, so with possible bets ranging from 0.01 to 50.00 per spin, the slot suits all pockets.
